Raised white letters

Has anyone installed tires with the old school raised white letters with some pics? Not sure if they would look goofy or not with the 20" wheels since the profile is so small.

i was debating on this, but i came across "tire pens" and you can do it yourself without buy new tires

I have seen those, but have used them on motorcycle tires before and it just does not last very long and stay bright.

Terrible, that's how they would look. No one makes a white letter 20" tire to fit the Camaro anyway. There's a reason for that too.

Here is a pic of a set of race tires on 20 inch wheels. They actually look way better than I thought they would on the bigger wheels. I think they would bring even more of the retro look to the car.

I guess if you want Goodyear Eagles on your car.
I don't think it looks bad...I just don't think it looks good.
